Despite Testimony of Treating Physician, Cobb County Jury Returns Double Defense Verdict
On March 8 and March 9, 2020, Taylor Barnett successfully defended a case involving an admitted liability, rear-end accident. Both plaintiffs were transported from the scene via ambulance. Plaintiffs introduced the testimony of their treating chiropractor and orthopedist, both of whom related their alleged injuries to the accident. Both plaintiffs’ MRIs showed multiple bulging discs. Ultimately, plaintiffs presented evidence of approximately $49,000 in medical bills and $6,700 in lost wages, combined. In closing, they asked the jury for an award of $80,000. After a short deliberation, the jury returned a defense verdict as to both plaintiffs.
